My husband, children, co-workers… it seems that everyone has been annoying me lately. Why do people have to be so annoying?
People will be the way they are. We cannot control how other people act. We can control how we react.
Once I let go of judging others and started to forgive them I started feeling true peace. Husbands, wives, children, co-workers are always going to do things that can upset you. That is life. If you let other peoples behavior determine your mood you will be like a wave tossed in the Ocean. When I am offended by someone’s actions or words, I confront them directly, if possible and appropriate. I pray for them and for my ability to forgive them. Sometimes it is very hard for me to do this. My flesh would like to gossip and complain. I ask God for the desire to pray, forgive and move on. This works for me. Try it. If someone annoys you, pray for them, forgive them and let it go.
John 20:23 “If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained.” NKJ
